What is the recommended time to wait before painting walls that have been skimmed? Our house is approximately 60 years old, and many of the interior walls are very uneven.

As we are about to renovate the house, we intend having the walls skimmed before painting them. How long should we wait after skimming to have them painted? Should a primer be put on first? How many coats of paint?
